Who can participate?
This competition is for any female-identifying or non-binary student under the age of 18. You do not need to live in Indiana to participate in this competition. The competition is aimed towards students in grades 5-12 but younger students can participate as well!
What is the difficulty level of this competition?
The problems in the middle school division can be expected to be around the same difficulty as the AMC 8 and MATHCOUNTS State/Chapter competitions.
The problems in the high school division can be expected to be around the same difficulty as the AMC 10 and early AIME problems.
What is the difference between virtual and in-person?
The virtual and in-person contests will be held on the same day with the same problems. It is up to the competitors to choose where they would like to compete, but they can only choose one of the locations (virtual or in-person). The scores from both testing pools will be combined, and the top scorers will be awarded prizes.
In-person participants will be given free swag, complimentary food, and will also have the chance to win exculsive in-person cash prizes if they score within the top 5 in their division. If you live in Indiana or can make it to our in-person contest, we would highly recommend for you to come!
What is the format of this competition?
There will be an individual round, buzzer/Kahoot round, and team round.
